A dwarf Spruce!
Picea sitchensis 'Papoose' a dwarf conifer with a rounded form. Juvenile needles grow like miniature puffballs on the tips of stubby, round branches and age to a silvery blue on one side and green on the other. An excellent cultivar for a dwarf conifer collection or to accompany perennial plantings. A beautifully formed slow grower, it increases its height and width by about 2 inches a year. New growth is as soft as fur; site where its texture can be appreciated and touched.
Originating on Vancouver Island, this is slow growing shrub that only puts on about two inches of growth each year. The needles are dark green underneath and silvery blue on top creating an attractive contrast. Great plant for a dwarf conifer collection or in the perennial border. Mature trees provide nesting sites and cover for many birds.
